Ah, my mistake perhaps, I thought that particular meeting was to discuss cloud infrastructure rather than open standards. But if it is a meeting in which Board members will participate, why not include it in the agenda so everybody knows about it? And why not take a day trip to Brussels and meet people there? As to not normally having dealings with employees of USA member companies, other groups in which I participated had dealings with many of those same people over collective phone meetings -- granted, phone is not the same as f2f, but to travel just for that makes no sense in my book. And given that OASIS has such a large European membership, why not have meetings with employees of European member companies? I'm sorry to say this, but what I see is either lack of imagination or lack of initiative. I hate being so critical, but as you very well know, I call it like I see it.
